Business Education Strategic Team
A career cluster is a group of careers that share common features.
Career & Technical Education: courses offering academic and technical skills.
An Individual Plan of Study (IPS) is a product AND a process guiding each student to define career goals and the path to achieve those goals.
An internship is a professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work related to a student's field of study or career interest.
An internship gives students the opportunity for career exploration and development, and to learn new skills. It also gives students the opportunity to evaluate career paths--do they enjoy the work, or should they possibly pursue another career path?
Career Pathways are educational paths to students' selected careers.
Pathways at Circle Public Schools include:
Business Entrepreneurship and Management
Construction & Design
Early Childhood Development & Services
Engineering & Applied Mathematics
Family and Community Services
